Interview With Google Sustainability & Energy Director (VIDEO)Two weeks ago, 500 participants attended Google and drove around in various electric vehicles within a three-hour period so that they could decide whether or not they wanted electric vehicles.

With the assistance of Plug-In America, Google was able to get 11 automotive manufacturers to participate in this project, including Arcimoto, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Smart, Tesla, Toyota, and Zero Motorcycles.

“By giving our employees the opportunity to pop the hood, kick the tires, and drive some of these electric cars and motorcycles, we hope some are inspired to switch out the gas pump for a charging cord.”

Google is now encouraging others to implement a similar project.
